    Pros

    JRM offers a great salary and are great people to work for and with for the most part (there's always one or two in every company who are hard to work with). For the most part, everyone works as a team no matter their position in the company or as a contractor. Employees and contract employees are treated with respect. It seems that, when hiring, how a person will fit in seems to be considered in addition to their qualifications to make sure everyone can work as a team. I think this is a great company to work for and plan to stay a very long time!

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet after more than a year except that most positions are dependent upon projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at McDermott full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    outstanding learning experience from the Pioneer and people of South Louisiana

    Cons

    Top management was the con of all cons

    Advice to Management

    Don't globalize. Should have stuck with what made the company strong...-just fabricating.

    Top notch people and processes. Worked together to get things done. Family atmosphere with co-workers. Performance driven.

    Pros

    Management and peers, for the most part, are congenial and cooperative.
    Salaries seem competitive
    Working atmosphere is casual yet professional
    9/80 work schedule allowing for 3 day weekend every other week is great

    Cons

    Communication between departments needs to be improved. Hard to do a job without necessary information or having to spend a lot of time trying to get information. This could be due to the nature of the projects being on tight schedule leaving little time to think about who will need the information downstream.

    Advice to Management

    Certainly the EPCI schedule is a major consideration when bidding but more consideration needs to be given when developing a schedule such as increasing manpower to meet the requirements.

    Please consider a 4/10 work week.
